The Buccaneers have agreed to terms with former Bengals OT Anthony Collins. Collins got an opportunity to start in 2013 when Bengals pro bowl left tackle Andrew Whitworth went down with an injury.

Collins flourished and displayed his excellent pass protection, not giving up a sack in 2013.

A 4th round pick in 2008, Collins has had time to develop as a reserve for the Bengals, but the feeling around the NFL is that Collins might be one of the better bargains in free agency this year.

The Bucs still have more retooling to come along their offensive line with a need at right guard after the release of Davin Joseph. Donald Penn is also expected to be released which would save the Bucs nearly $8 million in cap space. Collins deal has been reported to be between $6.5-$7 million.

UPDATE: After failing in attempts to trade him, the Buccaneers have released Donald Penn.
